When you click on the Shuffle Play button, Netflix brings out random Netflix content according to the content you have watched before or saved to My List. In other words, Netflix starts to find the content you may like from its library and play it automatically.
Although Netflix is testing the Shuffle Play feature with its users all over the world, a limited number of users can access the feature for now only through the Netflix application on smart TVs. Therefore, not all Netflix users can experience the new feature early.
Netflix’s new Shuffle Play button; it is located on the initial profile selection screen, on the main screen of the user profile or in the side menu of the TV application. According to the users who participated in the test, the button can only be seen in one or all of these three locations.
A Netflix spokesperson stated that their aim with the feature they tested is to make it easier for subscribers to discover new content, and that the data obtained in the test will be used to decide how the feature will be released.
